Abstract

This paper develops the standard rational expectations model of exchange rate determination with risk premia taken as exogenous. The exchange rate is equal to a weighted sum of all future values of the fundamentals and risk premia. Specifically, if risk premia are percei ved to be temporary, then their levels are negatively associated with rates of appreciation. This finding is consistent in sign with the results from the conventional regression equation, but the theory indicates that to obtain unbiased estimates, errors-in-variables techniques must be employed. Plausible estimates for the money market parameters are found from Canadian data. Copyright 1988 by Ohio State University Press.
